GeorgiaForward Explores “Homegrown” Strategies At 2013 Forum

Business & Community Leaders to Convene At Georgia Tech in Atlanta on July 11 & 12

GeorgiaForward 2013 FORUM 1

Atlanta, GA — “The fourth GeorgiaForward Forum will focus on how Georgia can remain a great place to live, learn, work and play through ‘homegrown’ strategies,” says Amir Farokhi, Executive Director of GeorgiaForward.  “Our theme this year is Homegrown: Strengthening Georgia From Within, and we have a fantastic program planned featuring noted experts and thought-provoking keynote speakers from around the country including Parisa Khosravi, Senior Vice President for CNN Worldwide, Anita Brown-Graham of the Institute for Emerging Issues, Kate Sofis from SFMade, and Dr. Ronnie Chatterji from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. Join us at the Georgia Tech Conference Center in Atlanta on July 11 & 12 for interactive and robust discussions on ways to improve the future of Georgia.”

From people to products, music to services, what can Georgia grow well “at home”? While Georgia is integrated into and dependent upon the national and global economy, in a competitive environment in which quality of life, human capital and local production are the distinguishing markers of successful countries and states, being strong at home can be the edge that provides economic and cultural vibrancy.

The Forum will also include full discussions on the future of rural Georgia through the work of the 2013 Young Gamechangers and the soon-to-be released Georgia Civic Health Index, a measure of how civically engaged we are in Georgia.
